Lovely cosy cottage. Set in a good location with plenty of walks. Good sized garden. Lovely views across the valley. Ideal for two people.
Miss Robinson September 2023
Badgers cottage is in a lovely location, very quiet and tranquil. The cottage was very comfortable and homely with lots of lovely details, including a large and comfy bed. The garden was large, secure and fabulous for our dogs. We used the cottage as a base to walk the coast path, it was an excellent location for this, and we were able to access all of the walks that we wanted to do. Thank you for a lovely stay, we would definitely recommend Badgers Cottage.
Mr Pope September 2023
Lovely cottage in a beautiful area of countryside. Ideal for a couple with a dog, the garden is a nice size and secure. Fantastic spot for watching night skies on clear nights as very little artificial light around.
Mrs Johnston August 2023
A cosy cottage for two, well equipped and comfortable with a large rear garden. It is well-situated for easy access to Bridport and to explore the surrounding area and further afield.
Ms Pickford July 2023
Lovely peaceful location and pretty cottage with beautiful garden.
Mrs Hancock June 2023
Small , well equipped cottage, but perfect for two people and two dogs! Beautiful garden to sit in the sun and the most wonderful views. Would definitely recommend it.
Mr Jeanes June 2023
We had a happy, relaxed week in the cottage which is ideally situated for walking the south west coast path.
Mr Hounam May 2023
This was our second visit to Badgers Cottage, which speaks to its many qualities. The accommodation is comfortable and well appointed, the location is excellent with many great walks, and the view from the garden is superb. Highly recommended.
Mrs L J Me Mercieca April 2023
Lovely location for exploring that part of Dorset. Nice little cottage but need to be mindful that the property next door can have 6+ people so you could have children playing. I only mention this in case you are looking for pure peace and quiet.
Mrs Baxter April 2023
Badgers Cottage was perfect, we loved the peaceful location, the views and the secure garden for our dog. We appreciated the hugely comfortable bed and slept really well. It was great to have the log burner which kept us cosy in the evenings. Lucy and Charlie were very helpful yet unobtrusive. We’ll certainly return.
Mrs Maiden March 2023
Excellent accommodation for a couple in beautiful surroundings
Mr Hawkes November 2022

Mr Hounam October 2022
The location is wonderful, with great views across the valley. The cottage is small, but perfectly comfortable, warm and well-proportioned. We enjoyed our stay very much and have rebooked for next year...
mr sweeney October 2022
This was our second visit to Badgers cottage and we had a lovely time, it’s in a great location, plenty of walking locally and some great local family run pubs close by. Ideally located for Bridport and the surrounding area. Would highly recommend either Badgers or Barn Owl cottages that are on the farm.
Mrs Williamson August 2022
Super holiday with my family next door could not have been a more perfect set up to go on holiday with my extended family. The property was immaculate, high spec equipment, so comfortable and relaxing. Will definitely be looking to book again.
Mrs Eaves August 2022
We really enjoyed our stay at Badgers Cottage. It had everything we needed and is in a beautiful area within easy reach of the Dorset coast, and lots of great places to eat. After busy days exploring, we appreciated the comfy bed and the private outside space.
Mrs Siberry June 2022
This property was far more remote than we realised, but we made the best of it and enjoyed stay. With afew tweaks it could be alot more comfortable.There was a lack of information leaflets regarding places to visit , eat etc.
Mrs Symonds June 2022
Wonderful location, views in every direction. Superb garden. High end appliances. Only about three miles to Bridport, good supermarket. Happy place.
mr sweeney May 2022
We had a lovely time at Badgers cottage, great location with breathtaking views, the family that own the cottage are very helpful, would highly recommend.
Mr Seymour April 2022
One of the best cottages we have ever had.
Mr Harvey April 2022
Badgers is the end cottage of three, with the middle cottage also let out. The owners live in the farmhouse opposite. There is also livery at the farm and they farm a few sheep, which had recent lambs. The lanes are quiet and the local pub can be seen across the valley. There are stalls to buy eggs and garlic and tomato plants within walking distance. Bridport is about 10 minutes drive away with markets on Saturday and Wednesday.
Mr Lambert April 2022
Excellent well equipped cottage surrounded by lovely countryside. Friendly helpful hosts. Highly recommended.
Ms Bagshaw February 2022
We wanted a cosy retreat and we weren't disappointed. Badgers Cottage was a delightful little bolthole to take a pause and recharge - and even the constant rain didn't dampen our spirits. The tea and biscuits when we arrived were most welcome! The cottage was clean, well appointed and, once we got the hang of it, the woodburner kept us toasty with lots of logs in the barn. The cottage had a lovely garden which would be ideal on a sunny day with fqantastic views. We enjoyed the local pub (the "across the fields" route perfect by day, less so by night!) and had some walks on the local paths so there's no need to go far away. The neighbouring sheep are very friendly, too! A few leaflets and maps of the local area would have been handy - and some games for rainy days would be a nice addition. We wouldn't hesitate to come back and have already recommended it to others. Thank you!
Ms Taylor December 2021
Ideally situated for Bridport (a short drive away). Enclosed garden for dog.

Mrs Scott September 2021
This our second visit to Badgers this time for 2 wks and would love to return .
The location and setting with the stunning countryside views and beautiful private garden makes this cottage special yet its only a short drive to lovely Bridport or the Dorset/Devon coast .
Classic cottages surprised us by leaving a card ,chocolates and bottle of Prosecco for our 40 th wedding anniversary which we celebrated when were there ,thank you so much for going above and beyond .
Mrs Evans August 2021
Comfortable and tasteful lily decorated cottage. Well located in village with 10 minute walk to very friendly pub and easy to access places and beaches on Jurassic coast. Recommend walk up Eggerdon Hill as great views across Dorset.
Mrs Symonds July 2021
Excellent kitchen equipment. Lovely bed, very wide and comfortable. Views while sitting in the garden were wonderful. Might be worth mentioning that the post code is either the very first or very last house in the village. That would have been very helpful.

Thank you for reviewing Badgers Cottage. Sometimes all that's needed is a cosy cottage, nippy weather and a warming wood-burner to make the perfect relaxing break. We hope to see you again soon. Bryony, Customer Support

Mrs Allen September 2020
Badgers Cottage is a beautiful, comfortable cottage, perfectly situated on a quiet country lane with access to plenty of walks from the cottage or a short drive to the coast and other picturesque villages. We can't fault anything about our stay and hope to return again soon. Classic Cottages team were helpful with a telephone query prior to booking and the cottage was very easy to book.

A lovely relaxing place to stay
Ms Raffle-Edwards August 2020
We had a really lovely stay- the property is beautiful and in a gorgeous location and all the interiors are very high quality (the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in!) It is located perfectly for trips along the east or west of Dorset and only 4 miles from Bridport and the supermarkets and amenities there. Highly recommended.

Mr Hinkley July 2019
Great location; the owners live in the nearby farmhouse and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They made us very welcome whilst not intruding. The spacious garden is a bonus in a property like this & the woodland walk was lovely. The quality of fittings & equipment was excellent.

Mr Whitehead May 2019
Plenty of lovely walks including woods within the grounds.Many attractions close by and Bridport for shopping including a Waitrose. Not impressed with Hive Beach cafe despite other rave notices, the food was beach cafe style but the prices were very high for this quality. Spyways Inn was very good value in a dramatic location
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for your review of Badgers Cottage - it's wonderful to hear you had a great time overall and managed to visit some amazing places during your holiday. We were sorry to hear that The Hive Beach Café hadn't been quite what you were looking for but really pleased you found the Spyways Inn instead. The Marquis of Lorne is also nearby which is great for children and walkers alike. Bryony, Customer Support
